Sleep disorder – A much bigger problem than you might think
Sustained wakefulness or disturbed quality of sleep affects many more people than commonly thought. Insomnia, the most prevalent sleep disorder, haunts about 30% of adults. Typically, the problem consists of troubles falling asleep and/or sleeping through the night. Part of the problem is the rise of the ‘24/7’ society with its round-the-clock activities. Part of the problem, however, stems from mental, psychosocial, and environmental factors producing sleep deprivation and, as a consequence, cardiovascular diseases, mental problems, and chronic diseases. Medical experts have only recently discovered the importance of sleep quality as a standard risk factor for public health. So, what have they found out?
Out of sync
The most common types of insomnia are so-called dyssomnias, i.e. abnormalities in the amount, quality, and timing of sleep. They are caused by the disruption of two essential antagonists, namely the sympathetic and the parasympathetic system. During sleep, the latter is primarily active. Its role is to restore physical and mental health. When disturbed, a number of important functions, e.g. the release of hormones like melatonin, which is of utmost significance for sleep quality and detoxification, are disturbed. In turn, stress hormones like cortisol are released causing elevated states of alertness and arousal, which in the long run, cause sleepiness, feebleness, and mood disorders. You might ask, ‘Just how many hours do you need to sleep on an average night?’ Well, rather than sleep quantity sleep, sleep quality is key. Also, there are different sleep phases ranging from shallow sleep to deep sleep (see figure). You must ‘cycle through’ these phases at your own pace. But sleep duration can be too short and too long and both may have detrimental effects. So, a night of healthy sleep is pretty much a question of individual needs.
So, what about the solutions experts set out to cure insomnia? Well, many, if not most, recommend the use of sleep medication. Others advocate relaxation programs or mental exercises. By and large, such measures are only of moderate use, at least in the long run. As for drugs, they only aggravate the problem. There are, however, intriguing developments in the field of information medicine which offer an effective and side-effect free solution. Scientists have discovered that health is dependent o the ‘proper’ electromagnetic oscillation of cells. As for sleep, disturbances of the biological order of both brain and body are at the root of things. The good news is that dysfunctional imbalances may be restored by applying biologically healthy frequencies. It is important to note that such frequencies purely act on an informational level, i.e. no physical energy is transmitted.
One such promising device is the vita chip. It is a cutting-edge informational bio-resonance device, which corrects dysfunctional information patterns and allows the body to fully activate its self-healing capacities. Not only does the vita chip improve sleep quality it also helps detoxifying organs and cells on an informational level. Dozens of testimonials, as well as scientific investigations, attest to its effect. Interestingly, many of the users had found little relief when resorting to orthodox treatment but experienced immediate improvement of sleep quality when using the vita chip. The vita chip is rendered even more powerful when applied to an electronic device (e.g. a cell phone).
